Player's Complaint

I have a gambling addiction and I am not proud of this but do try my best and self exclude to assist me in keeping my addiction under control.

I have self excluded from but was still able to open an account with betcoin and spent £5000

If I had of won, clearly I did not, I would been unable to withdraw any winnings as this would be against the terms and conditions.

So in theory I have just given the betcoin £5000.

Their response to me was the following Team

Hi stango1212 - welcome to!

Unfortunately there's nothing we can do to help you in this instance.

Firstly you should be aware that as a UK citizen you should only be playing with operators that hold a UKGC license. BetCoin do not hold a UK license and as such are breaking UK law by accepting your play.

As BetCoin are not subject to the UKGC license, they are not required to meet the same responsible gambling standards as licensed operators. It would also appear that they haven't allowed you to continue playing, but rather that you've registered a second account after you closed the first one.

Sorry we cannot be of further help.

The population of the UK is approaching the 67.6 million mark leading to a fairly densely populated land mass. The gambling sector in the United Kingdom is entirely regulated and licensed by the UKGC – the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. Should players resident In the UK wish to gamble with foreign based operators there is no history of this being treated as a criminal offence, but high levels of protection exist for UK residents playing with UK licensed operators.
